The Old One
In times past many pictured you
As some ancient, bearded geezer
Looking in on the world from afar.
But now we value your nearness,
You, The Old One from forever land.
You teach us while we sit near you
In the rocking chair of your wisdom.
We listen intently to how it was long ago
When your eternal peace and integrity
Were the only things the world knew.
Thought for Today: The Old One teaches me.
Joyce Rupp on Albert Einstein
